Since he was 7 years old, Pardon of Zambia has been at the head of his class.

Pardon, now 20, is a cool and gentle looking young man of the Kafue District who dreams one day of becoming a medical doctor. 

Pardon has been accepted to the University of Zambia for a Bachelor of Science degree in the School of Natural Sciences.

“I want to do medicine and later specialize in pathology or neurosurgery,” he says.

Pardon, who has two younger sisters and a younger brother, remembers entering a ChildFund International sponsorship program 14 years ago.

“The program paid for all my school fees and other requirements like school shoes, uniforms, books, mosquito nets, just to mention a few,” he recalls.
